About the Book
In this Caldecott Honor Book, the ingenious Hershel rids a village synagogue of goblins by cleverly outwitting them.

It is the first night of Hanukkah. The traveler, Hershel of Ostropol, is tired and hungry and looking forward to reaching the next village. He is sure that bright candles, merry songs, and platters of potato latkes will be waiting for him. But Hershel discovers that the villagers aren't celebrating—they're too scared of the goblins that haunt the old snyagogue at the top of the hill. But Hershel wants to help and comes up with a wonderfully creative plan!
